With Ellis getting thrust into the starting job last year with injuries etc., I was curious where he would be going in to training camp this year, particularly since I hadn't kept up with offseason moves by the Pats. Following is from a recap of their first day...

When the team first lined up on defense, Guss Scott and Artrell Hawkins were at safety, while Ellis Hobbs and Eugene Wilson manned the corners. Jarvis Green filled in for Richard Seymour at defensive end. The second unit on defense featured Eric Alexander at inside linebacker, Mike Wright at defensive end and rookie LeKevin Smith at nose tackle.
